SALT LAKE CITY (November 22, 2019) – The Sundt Foundation awarded $17,000 to three Salt Lake City nonprofits during its fourth-quarter disbursements.
“This quarter marks the Intermountain Region’s largest quarter in grant distributions to date, which provided grants to three different organizations supporting disadvantaged children,” said Dustin Murphy, Sundt Foundation board member. “It’s exciting to watch Sundt’s presence in Utah continue to grow as well as our contributions to communities in this region.”

Fourth-quarter grants include:
Shriners Hospital for Children, which received $10,000, provides care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs.
Ronald McDonald House, which received $5,000, provides affordable lodging and services to families who have critically ill or injured children being treated at one of Salt Lake City’s five pediatric hospitals.
